The survey was conducted by the School of Public Health at the University of Indonesia (FKM UI) in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Interior, the Eijkman Institute of Molecular Biology and the Prodia Laboratory. The survey analyzed 9,541 serum samples in 514 wards in major urban areas of Indonesia, as well as 10,960 serum samples in 580 rural villages.

The survey found anti-COVID-19 antibodies in 99.1% of people who received two doses of the vaccine. Meanwhile, this rate is 91.3% in people who have only received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Notably, up to 73.9% of people who have not been vaccinated and 99.4% of people who have just been infected with COVID-19 carry antibodies. The percentage of the population carrying antibodies is at 90.8% in urban areas and 83.2% in rural areas.

Recently, China continuously blockade many key localities of this country. The world’s number two economy is an important link in the global goods supply chain, so the blockade makes the world worry about the risk of disruption in the supply of goods.

However, during this epidemic, China advocated a drastic blockade and quick reopening. This approach is working. This blockade was implemented in many major economic centers such as Shanghai, Shenzhen, Jiangsu… Logistics and freight activities are inevitably congested at many major ports such as Zhoushan, Qingdao Port. … because of stretching, costs increase.

China’s National Health Commission announced that it had recorded 1,737 new cases of COVID-19, including 1,656 new infections due to domestic transmission.

On March 20, China ordered a stay-at-home order for millions of people in the northeastern city of Jilin in an effort to respond to the largest outbreak of COVID-19 in the past two years. The local government announced that Jilin, the second largest city in the province of the same name, with 4.5 million people will be locked down for 3 days from the night of March 20. Previously, China had brought the epidemic under control after the 2020 outbreak with blockade measures, mass testing and travel restrictions. However, the Omicron variant has “pierced” the line in recent months and spread to many cities.

The capital of Jilin province, Changchun city on March 19 also announced tightening of restrictive measures for 3 days. Since March 11, Changchun’s 9 million people are only allowed to go out every two days to buy food. The new measures only allow healthcare workers and epidemic prevention workers to leave their homes.

On March 20, the head of the special administrative region Hong Kong (China) Lam Trinh Nguyet Nga announced a plan to re-evaluate restrictive measures to prevent epidemics in this territory. Accordingly, a new decision regarding restrictive measures will be made after the government conducts an assessment on March 21.

Hong Kong still adheres to the “Zero COVID” strategy of the central government of Beijing, with restrictive measures and strict epidemic prevention regulations to quickly quell community outbreaks. Currently, Hong Kong still bans flights from 9 countries, requiring arrivals to be isolated for up to 2 weeks in hotels. The city also banned gatherings of more than two people, closed public places, including beaches and playgrounds, made face masks mandatory, and stopped in-person classes.

The most severe wave of the disease to date in this territory has severely affected nursing homes and disrupted operations in many areas.

According to new research from the University of Cambridge, UK, 75% of participants report persistent post-COVID-19 symptoms that keep them from working. Accordingly, with more than 180 people participating in the study, three-quarters of them had problems with memory and concentration after recovering from COVID-19. They said the symptoms were so persistent that they couldn’t work as they used to. According to experts, cognitive problems are among the most common symptoms reported in the post-COVID-19 group.

Children who have had COVID-19 can maintain natural antibodies for at least 7 months, and vaccination will increase protection against SARS-Cov-2 virus. This is the result of a study by scientists from Texas, USA that has just been published in the journal Pediatrics. The study, conducted in October 2020, collected and evaluated data on 218 Texas children between the ages of 5 and 19 who participated in the survey.

Study volunteers provided 3 blood samples at the time points before vaccination and during the period when Delta and Omicron variants were spreading. The results showed that, although 96% of the children had antibodies up to 7 months after contracting COVID-19, 58% of the samples did not have natural antibodies at the final tests.

Currently, some parents misunderstand that if they have ever had COVID-19, their child will be protected by natural antibodies without vaccination. Therefore, according to scientists, natural antibodies along with antibodies generated from vaccines are the best way to protect children against COVID-19.
